    Default lead drain

    Here's a nice lead drain popped into the soil pipe. For those of you that don't see much lead, the bulge is one clue.

    Forget the lead (although we thank you for showing us what they look like, at least I do because I do not see any), you are not allowed to do that anyway.

    Thanks Jerry. The whole soil pipe was riddled with leaks anyway, so it all has to go.

    I see lead under bath tubs and basement laundry sinks all the time. Still see some lead supply from the street, too. That gets expensive.

    I found three lead supply pipes in the last year. More of them in the older parts of this nation.
